Seven News reported the man wasn't speaking English.

Officials concluded he was pitch-siding, a tactic widely used in world sport to give bookmakers details of live action before television coverage is broadcast.

The practice of pitch-siding has been uncovered at cricket games in Australia before, with a man evicted for the act during 2016 one-day international between Australia and New Zealand in Canberra.

In 2014, a British national was evicted from two separate Big Bash League games in Australia for pitch-siding.

The then 30-year-old man had been evicted for using a laptop computer to pitch-side at two BBL games in Sydney in a seven-day span.

In England, pitch-siding at cricket has been known and monitored for years.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said in 2013 it had evicted 23 individuals for suspected pitch-siding during that summer of cricket.

The practice has also been widely detected in tennis, where it's referred to as court-siding.

At the Australian Open in 2014, a British man was arrested for court-siding - he allegedly had an electronic device sewn into his shorts to relay scores to a betting syndicate, but the charges were later withdrawn.

And at the 2016 US Open, tennis authorities said 20 spectators who had been caught court-siding had been banned for 20 years from attending the tournament.

Australia are in the game on a pitch already showing signs of variable bounce but should have been in a significantly stronger position. "We would've taken that at the start of the day but you're never content in a position," Finch said. Harris, Finch and Travis Head all failed to convert their 50s into hundreds, while Shaun Marsh also squandered his start. Head lost his wicket moments after partner Tim Paine exchanged remarks with Virat Kohli, presumably over the five o’clock shadow creeping across the pitch. "If we can get them out below 320 we're right back in the game," Vihari said.
